PCOD / PCOS Treatment in Gurgaon

Polycystic ovaries or polycystic ovarian disease or polycystic ovarian syndrome is a female gynecologic disorder of recent times. More and more women are being diagnosed with this complex gynecologic condition with various clinical manifestations. The incidence of polycystic ovaries in urban women seems to be as high as 10-18 %. It is a disorder of endocrine system in which one or both the ovaries have multiple developing eggs, leading to production of abnormal hormones many of which have androgenic side effects in the body.

PCOD may or may not have any symptoms. It may be diagnosed accidentally on a routine pelvic ultrasound or the woman may report to the doctor with few of the following symptoms

    1. Menstrual disturbances—Irregular /absent / scanty / heavy or prolonged periods.

    7. Endometrial hyperplasia


Clinical history, symptoms, hormonal tests and pelvic ultrasound

Polycystic ovaries on the ultrasound are characterized by presence of multiple cysts in the ovary, increased ovarian volume and increased stromal echogenicity.


So what causes PCOD?

It is not completely understood why some women develop polycystic ovaries and others don’t but in many cases PCOS has a genetic predisposition. The life style factors like sedentary life style, wrong dietary preferences and increased stress and worry in life also predispose women towards developing polycystic ovaries. Familial clustering of women is also seen probably due to genetic factors or due to similar dietary and lifestyle factors.
